Viewpoint World Elder Abuse Awareness Day Bridget Penhale School of Nursing and Midwifery, University of Shefﬁeld The International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse (INPEA) was founded in 1997 and is dedicated to global dissemination of information as part of its commitment to worldwide prevention of elder abuse. The United Nations International Plan of Action adopted by all countries in Madrid, April 2002, clearly recognised the impact of elder abuse and put it in the framework of Universal Human Rights. INPEA is dedicated to supporting the plan of action. As part of INPEA's agenda, World Elder Abuse Awareness Day was launched on June 15, 2006, having been designated as a World Day by the UN. A key and notable feature of this project was the partnerships and collaboration forged between interested individuals, agencies, organisations, NGOs, governments and corporations. Among those who offered support to the Awareness Day at international level were: the International Association of Gerontology (IAG), The World Health Organisation (WHO), The International Federation of Aging (IFA), Help Age International, Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO), the Subcommittee on Elder Abuse of the UN NGO Committee on Ageing, International Longevity Center (ILC – USA), American Association of Retired
